re PAL - it works!
Can't remember whether Belgium followed France and went for
SECAM (probably not - in many ways Belgium is more German
than French) but PAL and SECAM are close cousins (50 Hz,
625 lines etc).  I would totally recommend a 'native' (i.e. PAL
when in a PAL country) setup - using NTSC will enormously
increase costs in the long run.

Subject: [AG-TECH] PAL vs. NTSC

We have a location in Belgium that we have a few AG setup's and I was
wondering if the PAL format will work with that setup?  In the past we have
shipped NTSC to the location but we are moving to buying direct in the
country for equipment.   The vendor can get PAL but they are not sure of
NTSC.   Would anyone that has tried PAL have any thoughts or can they
confirm it works?  I have tried this conversion with a vBrick during testing
and it did not work.
